If you happen to be one of the many that are currently jobless or are hoping to find a new and more fulfilling job, you’ve probably found that it can be harder than expected. You’ve most likely updated your resume, networked to the best of your ability to get the word out, and have applied for an abundance of jobs that you felt might fit the bill. I bet the one thing you haven’t actively tried is creative visualization.
In reality, without even being aware, you’ve probably been using some creative visualization already. You probably broadly think about the type of job you would like, what your desk might look like, being able to set your favorite plant in the window of your own private office. This is creative visualization but to use it more effectively you need to be able to focus your desires.
The best part is that by using this focus you can draw on the scientific methods behind the law of attraction. By now you’re probably wondering how you can use creative visualization better. One of the first steps you will want to take is to create a small list. In this list you should focus on writing down all of your day to day activities that you feel bring happiness and serenity to your spirit. Once you have your first list you should then create a second list that illustrates all of these qualities as part of the job you want.
If you need a little bit of help starting you can begin by asking yourself some questions. Questions like:
- Where is my place of business located?
- What type of work would I do?
- What will my coworkers be like?
- How much will I make hourly or yearly?
By answering these questions you are beginning to build a blueprint of the life you want. Keep in mind that there are no right or wrong answers. Be mindful to answer with the truth you feel in your heart and not to be swayed by others expectations. As you begin to write your answers focus on what career would help you fulfill your passion, how much time you would spend at the job so that you continue to have a home life as well, and how much you want this incredible dream job.
The next step for creative visualization is to imagine that you have already achieved your goals. Envision that you are already working the job that fulfills all of the needs you wrote down. Concentrate on this vision often. The more you imagine yourself in your dream job, the closer it feels to reality, which is key to making it happen. Even if at first you feel like your desires are unattainable, continue visualizing until you can see yourself in the position without any doubts. This job was made for you!
As you continue visualizing you’ll want to return to your list regularly to remind yourself of your bright future. Don’t be embarrassed to say aloud affirmations such as “I have the job of my dreams!” or that “I look forward to work every day!” These little steps will make these words a reality faster than you’ve ever imagined. The best time to work on your creative visualization is usually first thing in the morning and just before going to sleep in the evening. During this time your brain slows down making it easier to work directly with your subconscious. Believe it or not your subconscious is the most powerful part of your mind and once you’ve shown it what you truly desire then you’ll be more capable of extinguishing the doubt that the conscious mind often creates.
While visualizing when you first wake and just before you sleep are most productive, it is also helpful to use your creative visualization as much as possible. You’d be surprised how many opportunities there are throughout the day. Work on your visualization as you stand in line at the grocery store, when you’re waiting for your car to fill up at the gas station, or while you’re in the shower. Any time is the right time when you’re choosing to focus on the job you’re going to have.
